Regarding the availability of Samsung’s recently announced Galaxy Note8 in India, we’ve so far reported that pre-orders in the country are due to start on September 11. When that info came out, the rumored price point for the new phablet was INR 74,900 ($1,170 or 984 at the current exchange rates).
However, a new rumor today says the official pricing of the Note8 in the subcontinent will actually be INR 69,900 (that’s about $1,092 or 918). That’s certainly more palatable than the previously rumored price point.
This new report also gives us a prospective release date for the Galaxy Note8 in India. This is allegedly going to be September 25, when you’ll find it in stock both online as well as in brick and mortar stores.
It will be out in black and gold color versions at launch, and if you pre-order you’ll get a free wireless charger.
